EPSON P-4000 formatted as ntfs HELP

A friend of mine got the P-4000. Now we didn't read the manual thoroughly, so we tried to put a 5 gb .avi movie on it but couldn't. I thought it was beacause of the FAT32 filesystem so I formatted it as NTFS. Of course now it's just a vegetable, when i open it it shows me the boot screen and then the message "press reset" appears. Pressing t doesn't do anything.
Please, I am asking anyone that has made a image of this device's HDD if he could please contact me. I really ned to fix this. This device is only a few days old and I can't believe I killed it from a stupid format.

Usb will not show avi movies?


One must remember that smart TVs are not computers. While they have a processor and can perform many computer-like functions, they are limited in what they can do to what the designers embedded in them. Many TVs can only read MP3/MP4 type encoding, and will not recognize other types such as .avi or .divx. Check your smart TV manual for a list of what file extensions are supported. If you have a computer, you can get converter software (often free) that will convert the file format. Then you can convert to a file format that is TV-friendly.

What format do I need to use from my usb to the back of the tv usb to show movies


Okay, define "format". Yes, formatting your hard disk/flash media to FAT32 is preferred for media devices like your TV, as NTFS is for PCs and Servers. Format of the file should be like MPEG-2 or -4, which is the standard for DVD-Videos and Blu-rays. It could support Divx or AVI's but please, read your manual, it tells you all of this. I don't want to mislead you.

I have downloaded 5 movies in avi and dragged them onto my archos 5 (250 gb) when i go to play them they keep breaking up and unwatchable can you help


Hi,
You may want to change the format of the movies. The player may be able to play .avi files but sometimes it will just not play and changing the format may alleviate the problem. Follow these steps: - Follow this link and download youtube downloader free of charge http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0.html?query=youtube+downloader&tag=srch&searchtype=downloads&filterName=platform%3DWindows&filter=platform%3DWindows - After you have downloaded and installed it please open it and go to convert a video you have already downloaded. - Select the movie you want to convert and then convert to .mp4 which should play with anything - Wait for it to convert and then drag it to your archos 5.

Unable to read mkv and avi video files from usb drive on philips dvp5990 dvd player


what error does it give? mine reads avis fine, as long as theyre within resolution limits. same for windows media format. couldnt get the mkv files to work though. the usb drive has to be formatted fat32, ntfs does not seem to work. burning these files to dvd as a data disc is another option. lets you fit 10+ hours of video on the disc vs your standard 2 or 4 hour max limits.

Wd passport will not load to my xbox 360


Re: My passport Elite 500 will not show up my Xbox360 Options 12-30-2009 11:19 AM
if it's the drive that comes with the smartware, then it comes pre-formatted NTFS , and your xbox needs FAT32 format to work.

So, you need to connected this drive on a mac computer to format to ms dos FAT32, or use a formatting utility like "partition magic" to format the drive to fat32, then if there's password assigned remove it, and it should work

I tried plugging in my WD hard drive to my DVD player to watch movies but the player wouldn't recognize it. Thank you!


First thing is to check what format the HDD is using - if it's been formatted on a Windows box, it's likely to be NTFS - and a lot of consumer electronics devices can't read NTFS, just FAT or FAT32.

Try reformating the drive with FAT32 file system (this is the default facotry mode).

Why can't I put a 7gb video on my 16gb Cruzer


I think I know what your problem may be. Check to see how the drive is formatted. Drives formatted with FAT32 cannot transfer files 4GB or larger. Try reformatting the drive to NTFS.

1. Open My Computer
2. Right click on the drive
3. Select Format
4. Under “File System” change it from FAT32 to NTFS
5. Check quick format
6. Click start

I have not tried this yet but if that does not work try this:

1. Right click on My Computer and select Manage
2. Click on Storage
3. Click on Disk Management
4. In the right pane right click on the drive letter assigned to the San Cruz
5. Select format and choose NTFS

I hope this helps. Good luck!
